I'm having a hard time finding a decent used Wave sail but have several old 16 mains laying around. Has anyone tried to have a sailmaker convert a 16 into a wave? Offhand it doesn't seem like it'd be terribly difficult, simply give them the dimensions, a few things would need to be re-positioned, but either way it seems that it would come out to be significantly cheaper than buying a new wave main. I'm looking for any tips or advice on this one I need to get the boat out on the water while there is still some warmth!!
Why not just get the right sail from your Hobie dealer or perhaps an aftermarket sailmaker?
I can't imagine any real sailmaker would even consider modifying an H-16 sail for less than making you a new one that fits.
Trust me, there is no economy in doing what you suggest, and even if it could be done for a reasonable price, you would still have a crappy sail made out of old materials.
